Community Win: Technet Wiki has become a global phenomenon


Welcome to our Thursday Community Win!

On Thursdays we get to tell fun stories about how TechNet Wiki did something that’s a little amazing… bringing community members together.

A few people have been wondering about a mysterious missing milestone that appears in your profile activity:  “the Technet Wiki has become a global phenomenon”.

We had 9 milestones listed on our TechNet Wiki article: What Is It Worth? Details on TechNet Wiki Recognition.

We even had conversations that maybe we needed to say there were only 9 milestones instead of 10 (which is the number listed in the Profile FAQ).

For example, here’s a comment on the Wiki article above from Zoltan…

Zoltán Horváth: The FAQ says a Wiki article can reach 10 possible page view milestones, but there are only 9 in the Wiki Activity Point summary table. Is something missing?

Enter Richard…

That helped me realize that I needed to verify if we were missing a milestone in our list.

So I went back to the Wiki article that was provided by Eric B:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/7893.what-is-it-worth-details-on-technet-wiki-recognition.aspx

For those who don’t know, Eric has led the efforts getting TNWiki started (and he got the “Wiki Ninja” vibe started). Here’s Eric:

I saw that we were indeed missing that milestone. So I asked John from our Wiki team. He dug and sent me the info.

So I then made the change. Check out the addition made in this Wiki comparison here:

In almost no time, Ana tweeted it!

And then Yuri sent us the tweet:

And Yuri even translated it for us…

“The article about the recognition points at #TNWIKI was updated, including the 20,000 views definition.”

And then Samuel jumped in with some formatting. =^)

Here’s Samuel:

So let’s see, that’s 3 community members (Zoltan in the Wiki comments, Richard on Forums, and Ana on Twitter) and 4 Microsoft employees (me, Eric, John, Yuri, Samuel) coming together in a short amount of time to collaborate on this story. And I think we had three countries involved!
 
Isn’t TechNet Wiki amazing?

    That’s right, Ana!

  4. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    And Ana already tweeted this blog post:

    We came full circle! =^)

    =D

  6. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    I went through the story and added a link to the Profile FAQ so hopefully that part makes more sense now. Thanks!

  7. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    I updated the broken profile links.

  8. XAML guy says:

    Yey for a happy ending, I will sleep well tonight šŸ™‚

  9. yoda.mester@freemail.hu says:

    Thanks for all your help šŸ™‚

  10. Richard Mueller says:

    I think the list of people involved is even longer. Someone asked me about "the Technet Wiki has become a global phenomenon",  I just don't remember who or where. My guess is that M Fawzi asked about it somewhere when he saw it in his profile.

  11. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Thanks Richard!
